In Issue 606, we recognize that after 53 days, lockdown restrictions are relaxing in the region. In Huron-Perth, we are back to where we were in December of last year - the orange-restrict level, however, Mother Nature is insistent on keeping us at the white-level with some wintery weather in the forecast. On the brighter side, we are 58 days into the season with just 33 days remaining until Spring. Now is that time of year when people turn to soup for comfort, and while there is no Soup’s On, Bayfield!” this year we can savour events gone by in this week’s photo story...

In Issue 600, well that seems a bit surreal doesn’t it? Yes, we are celebrating our 600th publication of the Bayfield Breeze this week and just to make it all that more memorable it is also day 12 of the provincial lockdown. Due to the ongoing COVID-19 crisis calendars for the start of 2021 are mostly blank but here in Huron County folks are fortunate enough to be able to go for long, uninterrupted walks, sometimes in the snow, and we do just that in our photo story ...
